~Pin Cushion Swap Received And Sent~


I was recently involved in a Pin Cushion Swap over at Maree's of Ollie and May
The deal was to send a Pin Cushion to a Secret Partner
My Partner was Tatyana and the Pin Cushion above is the one I received off her
Isn't it just lovely!!!
I just love the traditional star pattern.......Tatyana also included a fat 1/4 with a very similar pattern!!!


Tatyana also included some buttons and one of her beaded creations
And also a little owl


The cute little owl is for JoJo
Thank you so very very much Tatyana for thinking of her!!!


Tatyana also included her little card complete with little owls!!!
To see more of her creations go over here
Thanks you so much Tatyana for these gorgeous gifts....I am enjoying all of them!!!


My little package went to Lynda who I had actually met at Girls Day in the Country this year


This is the card I sent her


My little cross stitched Pin Cushion sitting atop a fat quarter

Thank you Maree for running this lovely little Pin Cushion Swap!!!

Both the sent and received parcels are lovely and would have been a joy to find in the letter box. Pin cushions are the sweetest sewing room accessories!

Both are so lovely. A girl can never have too many pincushions!

teeeheee..that little owl is PRECIOUS! I have a fond place in my heart for owls. My mum painted one for me that I cherish and Penny my blog pal made one out of wool.

How fun it is to swap with a pal, is it not? Thank you dear friend for coming to visit. You are SO dear to me. Anita
